We are grateful for the ongoing commitment and support from our contracted services and suppliers during COVID-19.

We fully recognise that during the outbreak some of our suppliers may;

  • Struggle to meet their full contractual obligations to us
  • Have had their services reduced or suspended, and / or
  • Have had to change the ways in which they are working

With this in mind, we want to help our contracted suppliers to maintain services and supplies by continuing to make payments in line with contracted values and paying invoices within 10 days of receipt.

If you feel your business requires additional support please visit our advice and support for businesses page.

If you require any further financial support over and above the measures set out by the UK Government, please contact your usual contact with us. Each request will be assessed on an individual basis, and whilst we cannot commit to approving every request, we will endeavour to support as many of our suppliers as reasonably possible. Please note that where additional support is agreed, we are not required to overpay for a service, adjustments will be made to future payments.
